VAT number (Austria Company Register) (AT-UID)


"Since July 11, 2005, the records of all commercial register courts are kept electronically. The general ledger is kept by storing the entries in a central database, the so-called "Firmenbuchdatenbank" in the Federal Computing Center in Vienna."[1]

Clearing houses commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Justice (Die Österreichische Justiz) provide the only access to the database.[2] Interfaces are mostly available only in German, and access/fees vary between the different operators.

Consider using the Business Register number with the prefix AT-FB (see list AT-FB) - which is a primary rather than secondary list - instead of the VAT number.
